Can you defend a no fault divorce?

Since the introduction of no fault divorce, it is no longer possible to dispute a divorce on the grounds that you do not agree. It is only possible to defend a divorce application on exceptional legal reasons, such as jurisdictional issues, or if you can prove that the marriage was never valid.  The person receiving the divorce application cannot dispute the other party’s belief that the marriage has irretrievably broken down.
